Gifts of the Spirit in African Art


Gifts of the Spirit in African Art is an exhibit of traditional African sculpture and works by a contemporary artist in the Dayton Memorial Library from December 10, 2012 – January 30, 2013.

This exhibit in the Hartman Gallery of the Dayton Memorial Library combines traditional African sculptures from Regis’ Archives and Special Collection with the contemporary vision of artist Donneve Rae. In a variety of media, Rae explores the timeless beliefs grounding both African religious beliefs and African art. Subtle, balanced, and mysterious, the art of Africa offers the viewer a spiritual journey.

The opening reception is on Monday, December 10th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the fireplace lounge in the Dayton Memorial Library. On Thursday, January 17th, “Coffee with the Archivist and the Artist”, is hosted in the library from 5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
